The Hague Legal Advisor on Hontiveros' alleged Philhealth anomaly: “Yan ba ang democracy defender?”
International law expert, a legal advisor in The Hague and as thunderous as her late sister Miriam Defensor Santiago, Paula Defensor Knack slammed Risa Hontiveros being such a corrupt political person.

In her recent Facebook post, Knack posted an article tagging the name of Risa Hontiveros who allegedly used the government funds for Hontiveros’ campaign. In an article written by Anne Marxze D. Umil published by Bulatlat.com, a group Health Alliance for Democracy (HeAD) requests COMELEC to probe the government’s funds used for the campaign of Hontiveros.



The Head Secretary General and Kontra Daya Convenor Dr. Joseph Carabeo stated that PhilHealth was used by some politicians to gain advantage on the elections. “The use of PhilHealth’s resources programs and materials by some candidates have been apparent since July 2015 and continues until this campaign period,” said Dr. Carabeo.

The article also stated that during the distribution of health cards by Former Akbayan Party List Representative Risa Hontiveros, her campaign materials were posted in the location of distribution. Dr. Carabeo said that a candidate works a function in a government office but what Hontiveros did was political leveraging.

“However, the way Ibay, Hontiveros and Akbayan are using PhilHealth tends to deceive the beneficiaries and the public that they are the ones who provide health services,” Dr. Carabeo added.



Hontiveros appeared in may posters in the PhilHealth advertisement, a TV commercial was also aired in mainstream media with an estimated expenses of P400,000 each commercial.

Dr. Carabeo also added that Hontiveros was not able to deal with Philhealth issues specially the sky-is-the-limit bonuses given to Philhealth execs. Dr. Carabeo describes the acts of Hontiveros as lack of delicadeza. The group also challenged Hontiveros to reveal the donors for her campaign funds.

Going back to Paula Defensor Knack, she said that Hontiveros never acted on the problems with PhilHealth, but Hontiveros used the Philhealth for her own advantage.  Knack also demanded Hontiveros to initiate a refund for their expensive bonuses, amounting to less than P 2Billion. “Ibalik ang P1.76 Billion bonuses niyo at ginasta mo sa kampanya mo. Corrupt ka! Dapat makulong ka! ” Knack stated angrily.
